    Retirement Tax Planning for Farmers

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Mar 15, 2020 

    The decision to retire is often met with either enthusiasm or fear. Some farmers are counting down the days until retirement, and others are scared to retire because they aren’t sure what they will do without work. Many farmers who have worked so hard for decades have not developed any hobbies outside of farming. The decision to retire is often one of uncertainty... Some states, such as California, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, and Oregon impose extremely high tax rates for individuals...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7, 2020 

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale... One common example in California is controlling the populations of two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) in strawberry crops by releasing a beneficial predator mite, Phytoseiulus persimilis... Another famous augmentative biological control use case is the release of the parasitoid wasp “Anagyrus pseudococci” by the growers in the Coachella and San Joaquin Valleys in California as part of their IPM programs to control the vine mealybugs... Others, such as the drone-performed biocontrol provided by our company UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture to growers in California, make the release of beneficials possible at scale for a growing number of crop types...

    How to Cultivate Cotton Organically

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated Oct 24, 2020 

    Though most of the organic cotton in the world comes from Asia, Texas in the USA is also a major producer. Although specific growing methods may vary based on region and farm size, there are general principles that can be applied throughout the world when it comes to growing organic cottonEconomicsThere are many reasons to grow cotton organically. The market share of organic cotton has grown from 1% in 2008 to 21% in 2018. Half of this is grown in India, with China (17%), Kyrgyzstan (7%), and Turkey (7%) being the next major producers... The University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources (UCIPM), recommends crop rotation to decrease the severity of bollworms, nematodes, and pathogens causing Verticillium wilt, seedling diseases, etc...

    Why Insectary Habitats Are Key In Organic Agriculture

She works with some of the main crops of the Salina Valley, California such as leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and artichoke... ”Some growers also release green lacewing larvae, and a University of California Cooperative Extension entomologist is currently conducting a study in Monterey county to measure the effectiveness of this beneficial insect to control thrips and aphids populations... In regions of the world where there are labor shortages such as California, it can be hard to hire a crew to perform weeding, thinning or other field tasks - and this situation got even worse during the COVID-19 pandemic... ”For both conventional and organic growers who are interested in staying up to date on the latest organic practices knowledge, Gina recommends following the Organic Trade Association (OTA), the Organic Farming Research Foundation as well as the California Certified Organic Farmers’s websites (CCOF)...

    Value Added Products - The future for farms of all sizes?

    By John Moody

    Published Apr 9, 2018 

    Many farmers have felt the pinch of falling food prices over the past year. Some sectors of the ag industry, especially dairy, are in a free fall, with our fellow farm friends hurting badly as low prices, consolidation, and other forces forcing many to sell off operations or even sell their farms. It is difficult days, but as I noted in my earlier article, things haven’t been good for US farmers in quite some time. Smart farmers who want to stay in farming are looking for ways to stay or become profitable... Also some heavily regulated states, such as California, have quite liberal cottage food laws...

    HEMP & CANNABIS

    By Christopher Keen

    Published Oct 20, 2018 

    We just received a wonderful testimonial from a grower in California whose crop was infected with Russet Mites. He is using our new Aloe 420 product on his crop. This is what he had to say:To the Aloe420 Team:I took over a 400 outdoor plant grow that was totally stressed by russet mites and if it were not for applying Aloe420 I would have lost the grow. The plant was split in half from the mite infestation and after 5 weeks of Aloe420 treatment, the plant has grown back together!Aloe420 saved us, and we will use it in our protocol from seed to pre-flower in all future grows... Plus, I have attached my recent testing results that met all of State of California Standards! We will now use Aloe420 as our savior band-aid for major issues such as with mites, but we now have Aloe420 in our protocol from seed to bloom...

    From Industrial Pesticides to Integrated Pest Management: A New Trend in Vineyard Practices

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Updated Dec 14, 2020 

    A notable example of an invasive pest affecting California vineyards is the vine mealybug, which is a major pest of grape vines not only because of the damage they can cause to the fruit but also for the viruses they transmit, such as the grape leafroll-associated virus. Vine mealybug infestation on a grape clusterTo discuss the latest knowledge on these topics, I reached out to Kent Daane, an entomologist and cooperative extension specialist at the University of California, Berkeley... From IPM to biocontrol: the need to manage insecticides According to Kent, all vineyard managers or Pest Control Advisors (PCAs) in California are practicing IPM to some extent, and comments that, “There’s not a PCA or farmer that I talk with that isn’t practicing IPM, although their view sometimes will be a little bit more towards conventional insecticides where others might be a little bit more towards sustainable practices... On the right: a Cryptolaemus larvaeUnfortunately, Anagyrus supply can be scarce in California and some growers don’t get them until August and September. Releases of parasitoids can still be done around harvest time, as Anagyrus overwinters pretty well throughout most of California...

    The Opportunity in Opportunity Zones

    By Benjamin Pezzillo

    Published Feb 28, 2019 

    By now you have probably heard about Qualified Opportunity Zones. But did you know QOZs are not limited to the urban core?QOZs were chosen by local and state officials out of each individual state's Low Income Census Tracts. Each state's lists was submitted to the federal government for review and approval. California's approved list was released in Q2 2018. So what are the benefits of investing capital gains in property in a QOZ?-- Deferral of Capital Gains Tax owed-- Elimination of Capital Gains Tax liability on future Capital Gains from the investment in a QOZSo what's the catch?-- The subject property must be located within a Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ)-- Ownership of the property must transfer to a special purpose vehicle called a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund-- The original property owner may be limited in the equity they can hold in the QOZ project-- To maintain QOZ status, the project must make substantial improvements to the property within 30 months of acquisition by the QOZ Fund-- Substantial improvements must be equal to or greater than the cost basis for the subject property-- For maximum Capital Gains Tax shelter, the QOZ Project must operate for 10 years and one dayGot questions or want to know if your property is located in a QOZ? I am happy to chat...
